What people are saying about our Diving experiences

  • Exceptional experience! Just finished a fantasy Scuba Diving weekend at Waterworld. Our group were well looked after by Sandra and all the team. The rooms were fantastic and the friendly staff made us all feel very much at home. Dive safety was exceptional and I must give Nuala a special mention for the great service and conversation at breakfast.

  • Top class! An excellent setup which has clearly been perfected over generations. B&B located a 1 minute walk from the pier where you can catch the boat to your chosen dive site. The instructors and guides are all very well educated with outstanding local knowledge.

  • No Drama! Thank you Sandra, Pat, Ronnie and crew from a group of adventurers in need of some Vitamin Sea. The hospitality throughout was a truly welcoming and magically Irish experience. Harbour House never disappoints, all guests were catered for, the service was first class and natural. The advice and expertise re diving is amongst the best available. We will be back…..and I hope soon.

  • 100% as usual. Fantastic trip as usual. On this occasion the weather was against us but from experience we made the trip from Dublin anyway. Sandra give us fantastic optional locations which did not disappoint. Just shows that this family run business will go out if their way to support and help in anyway possible. It’s a home away from home and I highly recommend. See you again soon.
